Share Kauai Aadheenam with Our Revitalized Booklet

Recently the monks in the Ganapati Kulam finished updating the give-away booklet "All About kauai's Hindu Monastery." As with all books physical there must be a digital version out there that needs updating. This digital merry-go-round can be found here and easily be stored on your browser as the go-to source for answering questions about us, Hinduism, our temples, pilgrimage FAQ, Hindu history and all of our apps-in one place.

Let's explore a little bit of what we have to get you started.

What is the Meaning of Nama Sivaya?

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha:
"What is the Nama Sivaya Mantra?" (February 13,2017)

The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world. Then comes Siva's revealing grace. When we've had enough of the world, Siva's grace pulls us toward God. The mantra also has the simple, two-syllable form. Si- Reflecting on God the Transcendent Absolute, Va-God as the All Pervading Consciousness
